the MS lens looks far superior..
Did Mr Magoo do the vision testing for the Oculus??
Someone at Microsoft Research is apparently unimpressed with Oculus Rift's perspective on the world, so has corrected it with lenses that give you Microsoft's view of things. Redmond's vision is expressed in this little CAD file that's popped up at Microsoft Research, offering you all you need to give your Occulus the …
The MSR lens appears to bring detail and a lot of pixilation...
The normal lens keeps everything blurry.
I am not sure that I would like either, but to be fair, one would really need to test these first hand... 2 small images on El Reg could only be considered as derisory...
I still wonder who will be buying into Oculus, will it just be the hard core gamers or are there other valid use cases ?
I was really excited about them when they were first announced, Then :
all the little issues that they cant fix, and don't seem too interested in fixing either, I wonder if this has anything to do with being purchased by a money making machine which cares very little for the product.
was also super excited about the hololens, but now truth creep about the limitations of either of the devices is putting me off.
I certainly couldn't be considered anything of the sort but am strongly tempted by not just the Rift but the various other implementations of VR/AR.
My other half has just taken ownership of a Note 4 so I may initially take the plunge with one of these beasties.
Really depends on the display resolution. If you can see the pixels, it will detract from the overall experience. A slight defocusing could help blend the pixels together without causing distortion.
The Oculus part looks disappointingly cheap. Single lens, rather than compound (which is probably why it has that chromatic aberration). The support ribs on the bayonet flanges suggest it's made of thin plastic, probably flexes if you squeeze the sides of it. Hard to tell what's holding the lens in place, looks like it could pop out fairly easily if you tried. In comparison, the Microsoft part looks more like my vintage telescope eyepieces.
